Notre Dame Football Highlights: Irish Embarrass USC 49-14
If you saw this one coming, you may have been the only one. Even the most optimistic of Notre Dame fan couldn’t have seen the biggest rout of USC at the hands of the Irish in over 50 years. But that is exactly what we were all treated to last evening. The Irish blew out USC to the tune of a 49-14 beatdown thrusting themselves firmly into the playoff debate. Enjoy these highlights on loop today. The final five weeks of the season just got a whole lot more interesting. Much more to follow.
Congratulations Frankie, 7-0. No one can claim that but you. Miami will be the next question mark.
Tillery played like a man possessed. Would have been cool to hear Him mic’d. Just one false start, one hold on O line. Brilliant in all phases. A little lapse on 2 drives in early 2nd half. Watkins showed He belongs. He did get burned a little later. We keyed on Rojo and he disappeared in the big pile. Loved the photo of Tillery hanging out in Trojan backfield with Darnold sitting there in a gaze. He saw Shamrocks!
The next question mark is Saturday at Notre Dame stadium, not in November against MIAMI. NC State is underrated by the media and an all around better team than USC. This will not be an easy win to get.

Frank , your’e right , a total beat down on USC. Like I said before — this Irish team are the “Unknowns” of the 2017 season. Yet each game they keep getting better right before our eyes. Stepherson , a new weapon at mid season — to spark offense and the play of Te’von Coney on D only adds to the mystique of this Notre Dame 2017 squad. Brandon Wimbush is a dangerous indvidual –and any opponent is going to have fits on what he’s going to to do.
